Award in Education and Training (VTCT Level 3)

Important Announcement

From July 2022, Kerry, the lead tutor at Cheltenham School of Complementary Therapy & Beauty will be taking a sabbatical, for an academic year. Every teacher needs to make time to learn and 2022-2023 will be Kerry’s time to learn. This will mean that the school will either operate at a very low level or perhaps will not be offering any training at all. If you’ve been putting off making a change and have considered studying Reflexology, Massage, Aromatherapy and more, this really is the year to do it!
